La Aroma de Cuba has always been a brand to which I didn’t give much attention. But I’ve recently seen the light. La Aroma de Cuba is an old Cuban brand with a great back story.

It almost feels a little weird to say this, but I actually like Magellan Dominicans. If you had told me that I would actually enjoy a 55-cent, mixed filler, small corona that comes wrapped in a map (yes, a freaking map), I would have told you that you were crazy. But the truth is, Magellans are pretty good....actually better than a bunch of brands that cost a whole lot …
